Brief Summary:

The main aim of the study is to learn if soticlestat, when given as an add-on therapy, reduces the number of seizures in children and adults with Dravet Syndrome (DS) or Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS).

Participants will receive their standard anti-seizure therapy, plus tablets of soticlestat. There will be scheduled visits and follow-up phone calls throughout the study.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dravet Syndrome (DS) Lennox Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) Drug: Soticlestat Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The drug being tested in this study is called soticlestat (TAK-935). Soticlestat administered long-term in pediatric and adult participants who participated in either of the antecedent Phase 3 clinical studies, TAK-935-3001 [NCT04940624] (participants with DS) or TAK-935-3002 [NCT04938427] (participants with LGS) will be assessed for additional safety and tolerability data along with efficacy analysis.

The study will enroll approximately 376 participants.

All participants will receive soticlestat based on their weight in the 2-week Titration Period. Following the Titration Period, participants will continue to receive the same dose in the Maintenance Period. At the end of maintenance period, the dose will be down-tapered (unless already at the lowest dose) and then stopped. Participants not tolerating minimum dose of 100 mg twice a day (BID) will be discontinued from the study.

This multi-center trial will be conducted worldwide. The overall time to participate in the study will be approximately 4 years, or until the study is stopped at the discretion of the sponsor, or the product is approved for marketing. Participants who discontinue study drug treatment before the completion of the study, will continue to be followed per protocol and maintain a daily seizure diary until the final follow-up phone call

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With At Least One Treatment Emergent Adverse Event (TEAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    An Adverse Event (AE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a drug; it does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (example, a clinically significant abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a drug, whether or not it is considered related to the drug. A TEAE is any AE either reported for the first time or worsening of a pre-existing event after first dose of study drug and within 30 days of the last administration of study drug.

  2. Change from Baseline in the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) Categorization Based on Columbia Classification Algorithm of Suicide Assessment Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 for Participants Aged ≥6 Years [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
  3. Change from Baseline in Body Weight for All Age Groups [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
  4. Change from Baseline in Height for All Age Groups [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
  5. Change from Baseline in Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) for Children Aged 2 to 17 Years [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
  6. Change from Baseline in Tanner Stage for Children Aged 6 to 17 Years [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    Tanner assessment score is used to document the stage of development of puberty by assessing the secondary sexual characteristics, rated in 5 stages: stage 1 (no development) to 5 (adult-like development in quantity and size).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change from Baseline in Total Seizure Frequency per 28 Days for DS and LGS Participants [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    Seizure frequency per 28 days is defined as total number of seizures reported during the period divided by number of days during the period seizures were assessed multiplied by 28. Percent change from Baseline is defined as (frequency of seizures per 28 days during Treatment Period - frequency of seizures per 28 days at Baseline) divided by the frequency of seizures per 28 days at Baseline multiplied by 100.

  2. Percent Change from Baseline in Convulsive Seizure Frequency per 28 Days in DS Cohort [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    Convulsive seizure frequency per 28 days is defined as total number of convulsive seizures reported during the period divided by number of days during the period seizures were assessed multiplied by 28. Percent change from Baseline will be defined as (frequency of convulsive seizures per 28 days during Treatment Period - frequency of convulsive seizures per 28 days at Baseline) divided by the frequency of convulsive seizures per 28 days at Baseline multiplied by 100.

  3. Percent Change from Baseline in Major Motor Drop (MMD) Seizure Frequency per 28 Days in LGS Cohort [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    MMD seizure frequency per 28 days is defined as total number of MMD seizures reported during the period divided by number of days during the period seizures were assessed multiplied by 28. Percent change from Baseline will be defined as (frequency of MMD seizures per 28 days during the Treatment Period - frequency of MMD seizures per 28 days at Baseline) divided by the frequency of MMD seizures per 28 days at Baseline multiplied by 100.

  4. Clinical Global Impression of Improvement (CGI-I) Score [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    The CGI-I Clinician is a 7-point Likert scale that the investigator uses to rate a participant's change (improvement) in overall seizure control, behavior, safety and tolerability, after the initiation of study drug relative to Baseline (before treatment with study drug). The participant will be rated as follows: 1 (very much improved), 2 (much improved), 3 (minimally improved), 4 (no change), 5 (minimally worse), 6 (much worse), and 7 (very much worse). Higher score will indicate worse symptoms.

  5. Caregiver Global Impression of Improvement (Care GI-I) Score [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    The Care GI-I is a 7-point Likert scale that the caregiver uses to rate improvement in overall seizure control, behavior, safety and tolerability after the initiation of study drug relative to Baseline (before treatment with study drug). The participant will be rated as follows: 1 (very much improved), 2 (much improved), 3 (minimally improved), 4 (no change), 5 (minimally worse), 6 (much worse), and 7 (very much worse). The parent/caregiver will complete the Care GI-I via interview. Higher score will indicate worse symptoms.

  6. CGI-I Seizure Intensity and Duration Score [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    The CGI-I seizure intensity and duration instrument is used by the parent/caregiver to rate improvement in intensity and duration of convulsive seizures (DS Cohort) or MMD seizures (LGS Cohort) from Baseline. The participant's symptoms will be rated on 7-point scale as follows: 1 (very much improved), 2 (much improved), 3 (minimally improved), 4 (no change), 5 (minimally worse), 6 (much worse), and 7 (very much worse). Higher score will indicate worse symptoms.

  7. CGI-I Nonseizure Symptoms Score [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    The CGI-I nonseizure symptoms instrument is a series of single-item assessments that the investigator uses to rate improvement in the symptoms and impacts in select nonseizure domains since initiating the study drug. The participant will be rated on 7-point scale by the investigator as follows: 1 (very much improved), 2 (much improved), 3 (minimally improved), 4 (no change), 5 (minimally worse), 6 (much worse), and 7 (very much worse). At Baseline, a symptoms form is completed by the clinician in collaboration with the primary caregiver to assess the participants status based on the presence of any nonseizure symptoms. Higher score will indicate worse symptoms.

  8. Change in Quality of Life Inventory-Disability (QI-Disability) Score [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    The QI-Disability tool is a parent/caregiver-reported questionnaire that evaluates quality of life in children with intellectual disabilities. It contains 32 items covering 6 domains of quality of life: physical health, positive emotions, negative emotions, social interaction, leisure and the outdoors, and independence. Scores are from a 5-point Likert scale and then are transformed to a scale of 0 to 100. Possible scores range from 0-100, with higher scores indicating better quality of life.
